Today I’m presenting you with the track This Blessed Day by the Swedish composer and piano player Maria Grönlund, which you can read all about in this Behind the piano article. Maria comes from Stockholm and started playing the piano at the age of six.
The track This Blessed Day was released as a single on the 10th of November, 2020. It is also part of the Christmas EP Angels which came out Today, on the 24th of November, 2020.
Tell us something about your track This Blessed Day!
I love this piece and it’s very special to me. It’s actually a Scandinavian Christmas song that was written down in the 1400s (!) and is probably older than that. It was sung in church on Christmas morning, and I find it so fascinating that people have sung it during so many centuries celebrating the joy and peace of Christmas. It gives me a sense of community with the ones that came before us.
Thank you Maria!
